-- does hillary clinton and the obama administration view the libya intervention as a success? how much did they view that intervention as what precipitated the set of effects afterwards? >> militarily the intervention by nato in libya was clearly judged widely as a success. it forced gadhafi out of power and it changed a state that had been among the most draconian in its practices at all levels into something that opened up hope for six and a half million people. the problem is the united states has never been very good, whether it's in afghanistan, iraq, in creating an alternative and the bol line is the united states basically walked away when it came to how do you create a new state, how do you facilitate the diverse forces, whether it's the tribal elements, more than 300 militias that had formed during that brief eight-month involvement, how do you stem the flow of weaponry and create an alternative. if you saw charlie wilson's war, at the very ending of the movie when he says i raised all this money, billions of dollars for arms to the opposition to fight off the soviets but i co
in mali and what they are doing there. is this worrying the obama administration? is there support for this? >> well, obviously the united states is providing refueling facilities for the french warplanes so, yes, the united states is playing a role already. i think there are no comfortable choices and that's one of the realities across the region today, whether it's in mali or syria, post revolution egypt and libya. the united states doesn't have a grand strategy. it's looking at each case individually. the reality is that with islamists taking over northern mali, which is larger than france, just that part of it, this then creates a greater threat throughout the region. and unfortunately the outside world dithered for way too long in trying to figure out a response and to the earlier point, the fact is the africans can't do it themselves. there's been talk for two decades about creating an africa rapid deployment force and they haven't been able to bring it together, provide training, cohesion, command and control and as a result there is no local or regional alternative. >> afri
a record number of deportations under the obama administration. record now 1.8 million people have been deported. the border is more secure than it's ever been in o'our recent history, and the fact of the matter is that something like this which deals with issues like the border, it deals with what to do with the broken legal immigration system, both sides agree that it's broken, but also deals in a humane matter with 11 million people who are here without their documents and who have been here for many years, many of them have children here, have grandchildren here and have contributed to this society and to this economy for many, many decades. this is something extremely well received. >> the politics of this, republicans as john mccain was the first to say yesterday, republicans have to deal with the facts of life here. now, ironically, if john mccain and lindsey graham and others had joined with george w. bush, this could have been done in 2007. >> right. what john mccain sort of didn't say but implied was what has changed about this issue? it's simple. november 6th, the 2012 genera
'll be joined by former governor and senator tim kane to discuss the obama administration's efforts to reduce gun violence. can -- tim ak -- kaine was the governor of virginia during the shootings at virginia tech back in 2007. also, there was an announcement yesterday by senator dianne feinstein, banning assault weapons. that is available on our web site at c-span.org. pentagon lifting the ban on women in combat. tom in ohio, what are your thoughts on all this? caller: there were some women suing the pentagon over the lack of being able to get into combat. the requirement for combat -- they are using that to be promoted. the good old boy network, if you do not want women to advance, you require combat and you cannot let them go to combat. i think the timing is curious with a lawsuit being in court now. host: thank you for the call. date on the republican line, from new jersey. caller: one thing i wanted to point out. i think the gentleman earlier said he was a sniper in vietnam. he brings up some cogent points. i understand and appreciate a lot of what he is saying. i look at it slightly dif
't supposed to have. also, we know that the obama administration is in active conversation with the supreme leader right now for a grand bargain. significant detail here. the attack took place, the day before the israeli election. the day before benjamin netanyahu was returned to make -- to form a government. he is now forming a government. this is huge news in israel. all of the television stations will be going with it tomorrow, the newspapers are going with it now. >> you say -- you say the united states government is negotiating a grand bargain with iran? that is nuts. have they learned nothing in the team obama? >> september 1938 is my watch word for what's going on right now. we're looking at making a deal with the supreme leader who is a predator and leads a predator state with a nuclear weapons. ask moscow right now where it's missing technicians are at fordow. ask ukraine right now where the missing technicians are. i don't have those answers, we'll get them in the coming days if there's a rescue effort. there's fear of radiation, larry. this is a huge story if it's a nuclear accid

, t.j. this is certainly a setback for the obama administration. the white house sharply criticizing this ruling and pointing to the fact that presidents going back 150 years have engaged in appointments, recess appointments. ronald reagan made more than 200. george w bush made more than 100. at issue in this instance is the senate technically in recess when they are in a pro forma session. pro forma means that senators aren't really here. they're not getting any work done. but they are gaveling into session every few days. the obama administration has argued that means that the senate is in recess. this court ruled otherwise and disagreed with the obama administration. republicans are praising this ruling. today they are saying it was the right ruling and that president obama really engaged in overreach when he made those appointments. so to your second question, t.j., what happens now, at this point in time the justice department not weighing in on what it will do next. but if you talk to legal analysts, they believe that the administration will take this to the supreme court. so t
a coherence in the obama administration, which revolution they're support, but clearly i understand where the president and secretary clinton were coming from when they said we need to be very cautious when we decide what we're going to do next. >> just to pick up on your point, failed states are the great problem. >> yes. no structure, no security. they create instability in whatever region they happen to be in. this is not about the middle east. it's about how do we moving forward deal with the problem of basically anarchy in many parts of the world. >> and before we let you go, i mean, we're also -- this is on the heels of hostage situations in algeria. increased activity by al qaeda. the question is where does the west look for leadership, and where is the leadership? >> that's a good question. it highlights how explosive a small isolated situation can have global implications. the three cities that president morsi has put under a state of emergency, they're all long the suez canal. one of the most important waterways for global interest, american naval vessels pass through the suez c
the virtue, after eight years then of barack obama and the obama administration, of being seen as somewhat of an outsider. and so it's a better way to go up against a republican, you know, after eight years of the obama administration is to have the first woman. that's the logical event that she basically would clear the field, even among the great friends and admirers of joe biden who i think has been the most effective vice president we've seen. the other small foreign policy point, not so small, the president was saying, ask moammar gadhafi and we wouldn't have what we had against mubarak. look at the headlines overnight. look at the streets of egypt, all over egypt today, egypt is hardly a success story that they should be pointing to. >> that's exactly right. in baseball, we're in the first or second inning of the middle east. this literally could be decades of turbulence. we've already seen the relationship between libya and mali and egypt, there's yet to be anything remotely like the consolidation of a democratic political order. so i think we have civil war in syria, we have unrest
, thank you very much. >> the obama administration today suffered a stinging rebuke from a federal appeals court, the court ruling obama's recess appointments to the very pro labor national labor relations labor board were unconstitutional. and that decision to jeopardize his recess appointment of the liberal regulator to head the consumer financial protection bureau. is all of this unveiling more abuse of power from the white house? joining us jimmy williams, sara fagan and mark simone. just on this menendez story, mark simone, again, i can't report anything that i can't report. do you have any comments on what -- >> it would be a terrible scandal for these prostitutes to now be associated with bob menendez. >> hold on, let him finish. >> see that's funny. that's pretty good. >> i would hope this is not true. but i don't know. you'd think if there were no fbi investigation, menendez would have gotten them to put out some kind of statement. he's got a big problem if he just took those trips because that's a donor, that's a huge gift and apparently he didn't report that. >> that's a really
the governors expect to see in round two of the obama administration. wisconsin's governor scott walker joins us. good evening pgood morning. >> good evening, greta. >> greta: first your thoughts on the inaugural address today? >> days like this are always uplifting, but the rubber hits the road the next couple of days and i think with the 30 states that have republican governors, we're hoping we have a president that's willing to work with the states and give us some authority to act on behalf of the taxpayers. if we can do that, we will have some good progress, but ultimately it's got to be about growth and getting people back to work and the best way to do that is through limited government and putting more money back in the hands of the american taxpayers. >> specifically, what would you like to see him do? >> well, i think a number is one, if we talk about things simple as medicaid and other issues that come up in the budget over and over again, empower states, democrat and republican governors alike, empower governors to go out and make decisions on state by state basis not one size fits a
as treasury secretary if he had won. he was faced with an economy in freefall. the obama administration passed the tax package. on "meet the press" in the spring of 2009, geithner said the government couldn't afford to wait. >> we can leave it as it is, hope banks will earn their way out of this process over time and i am certain that would create the risk of a deeper, longer recession. again, the classic lesson in financial crises is governments wait to act, they wait too late and that means more damage to the economy, higher deficit in the future, greater cost for the taxpayer. we're not prepared to take that approach. >> it seemed like each time one crisis subsided, another cropped up, a faltering housing market, the european debt market. according to the numbers, the results have been mixed. the economy was losing an average of 651,000 jobs in the three months before geithner was sworn in. in the last three months in his, the economy added an average of 150,000 jobs. the dow has gone from 8,000 has gone now to almost 14,000. the number of unemployed has gone from 11.6 million to 12.2 milli
't act. the options on the table for the obama administration, we are live with that story. jon: turning now to the growing debate oef guns in this country, as bills are drafted on capitol hill some gun control advocates are looking at other ways to restrict gun sales if congress doesn't act. some options might include actions by federal agencies that oversee gun and ammunition makers. shannon bream has a look at that live from washington for us. shannon. >> reporter: jon those working to limit gun rights say if they can't get it done on capitol hill there are other avenues, including trying to put a financial pinch on gun manufacturers. officials across the country are directing their pension fund managers to get rid of any holdings linked to the gun industry. >> it should not go to profit companies that produce weapons designed to maximize carnage and death. >> one of the things we are doing today also is to continue to put the pressure on this is i've ordered all the chicago pension funds to check any of their investments and if they have it we're going to divest of any investments th
by charles krauthammer, at first a look at how conservatives are preparing for the obama administration from today's "washington journal peer co--- journal." h: let me share the comments from bobby jindal. guest: i like bobby jindal. i think stupidity allows you to stick to tried and true vegetables that is better than the cleverness of people in the obama administration who think they can design the entire health care system from scratch in washington, or target $850 billion of stimulus effectively. i would defend it to some degree, but i would agree there's probably been accessed in the last two years, and it is easy to say that, but the proof is in the pudding third in the case of bobby jindal, he has been an impressive governor of a state that was not in great shape when he took over, and that will be crucial to the republican party, not people like me saying do not be stupid , but republican officials proving that conservative policies work. host: reince priebus indicated that he is authorizing an autopsy, in trying to figure out what happened last november. what happened? what would yo
. neither the bush administration nor the obama administration has wanted to confront the scale of international terrorism and the scale of the fanaticism which is driving it you could argue that obama is worse, but the elites in both parties are trying to find some way to get it down to being a manageable problem. it's a big problem. and frankly, nobody in the u.s. is covering the problems in pakistan, which are very real. pakistan is probably building more nuclear weapons right now than any other countries in the world. we talk about an iranian bomb maybe in the the near future. i think there are whoever a hundred pakistani nuclear weapons and it's a very fragile country with very, very deep problems. afghanistan is decaying, it's not getting better. iraq is decaying, the amount of violence in iraq has gone up dramatically and syria is a mess. and bahrain has a serious problem and yemen is a mess. somalia is a mess. you start looking around and begin to realize there's a much more dangerous world out there than president obama's inaugural address or secretary clinton's testimo

. >> good explanation, thank you. so what happened to the billions of dollars that the obama administration said would bring the country said high-speed rail. our own drew griffin has been investigating how some of that money went to a low-speed project. >> it's probably 5 1/2 to drive and 7 on the bus and 9 on the train. >> so the train is not your fastest route. >> not at all. no. music: "make someone happy" music: "make someone happy" ♪it's so important to make someone happy.♪ it's so important to make meone happy.♪ ♪make just one someone happy ♪and you will be happy too. so if ydead battery,t tire, need a tow or lock your keys in the car, geico's emergency roadside assistance is there 24/7. oh dear, i got a flat tire. hmmm. uh... yeah, can you find a take where it's a bit more dramatic on that last line, yeah? yeah i got it right here. someone help me!!! i have a flat tire!!! well it's good... good for me. what do you think? geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. >>> president obama called it a great project to rebuild america. a $13 bi
, and a blood clot, clinton pushed back on the assertion that initially the obama administration deliberately misled the public. >> and we were misled, that there was supposedly protests, and then something sprang out of that, an assault sprang out of that. >> with all due respect, the fact is we had four dead americans. was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night that decided they'd go kill some americans. what difference, at this point, does it make?! it is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, senator. >> reporter: it makes quite a bit of difference, of course, in the context of the global terrorist threat throughout northern africa, including, now, mali and algeria. >> there's no doubt that the algerian terrorists had weapons from libya. >> reporter: it also makes a difference to those republicans convinced that the administration was misleading. >> i categorically reject your answer to senator johnson. to say that it's because an investigation was going on. the american people deserve to kn
and the white house staff. the obama administration has appointed more czars than the romonovs. we've always had some czars, such as the drug czar, but they have three dozen, three dozen who aren't subject to the usual restrictions that we -- that we have through the appropriations process. and the most blatant example of the imperial presidency are the recess appointments at a time when the senate, according to this court, was not in recess in order to put on to those positions men and women with whom the senate would not agree. if the president could do what the president did on january 4, 2012, on a regular basis, we might take a recess break for lunch and come back and find we have a new supreme court justice. so, mr. president, i'm here to suggest that the right thing to do would be to respect the tradition of checks and balances that are built into our constitution. it's at work here, because the president took an action; we didn't like it. and the third branch of government has made a decision that the president was wrong. the way to go forward is for the two members of the national labor
or hillary clinton or president obama, or any one of them in the administration is to mislead, to actively try to prevent false facts about what happened in benghazi. and no one has ever come close to suggesting any kind of motive. >> no, i think that is absolutely right. hillary clinton demonstrated what a professional she is by saying she absolutely takes responsibility. and with the review board's work, she has gone to sort of look through this question of what ought to be a direct reporting of crises up to the secretary level. but also what has not received as much attention, she is warning there are other facilities out there today. very true on the day the tragedy occurred. people died, ambassador stevens and three other great americans died in this conflict. and we today have under-resourced defenses for other facilities. and she said we need to fix this. and those members of the gop who were launching the attacks on her, some of them have been part of the process of trying to undermine diplomacy of the state department for years. and this is time to actually step up and resource th
economic recovery and economic prosperity in america. they feel president obama is not getting behind this surplus we have. you heard the caller touch upon that when he mentioned what happened, on the moratorium on drilling. it was contested in court and the administration lost that fight. there is a question about how much obama will get behind that. yesterday he talked about climate change and other things. i think the next four years may be tough for energy producers. guest: natural gas has become so plentiful and prices have come down so much that is changing a lot of the economics of the energy industry. that plays right into the question of climate change policy. to the degree that natural gas which is cleaner than coal begins to replace coal as the primary fuel for power plants, that reduces carbon emissions. all of these things are sort of working together. the administration keeps pointing out that oil and gas production is higher than it has ever been and that is true as the economy comes back but there is an inherent tension between some of this energy policy and a job poli
of the administration's troubles flow from the top. obama is a lousy manager. this is the worst-kept secret in washington. every democratic senator has complained about how he never calls them he never reaches out. forget the republicans. the democrats say this. we've all heard it. we've heard it for four years. we've heard people that have been inside the white house running the white house saying it's been a dysfunctional place. how does a president turn that around and actually become an effective manager, become an effective president? >> i don't know. i don't know how he turns it around because -- >> is he capable? >> i think he is. clearly, his nature is to be for lack of a better phrase a bit reclusive in his presidency. >> this "sunday review" article says he's the most isolated president since richard nixon. this is "the new york times." the most isolated president since richard nixon. >> he's emotionally isolated i would think, from a large body of senators and congressmen. there's no doubt about that. i just want to get back to one second to where we were a cou
, and the administration lost that. the question about how much obama will get behind that. he did not mention it yesterday in his speech. he talked about climate change and suggested going in the opposite direction. the next four years may be a tough one for energy producers. guest: shall pass has become so plentiful and prices of it -- natural gas has become so plentiful and prices of it has come down so much it is changing the economics of the industry, which plays into the question of climate change policy. to the degree that natural gas which is cleaner than cold begins to replace coal as a primary fuel for power plants, that reduces carbon emissions. all of these things are sort of working together. the administration keeps pointing out that will and gas production is higher than it has ever been, and that is true as the economy comes back. there is an inherent tension between some of this energy policy and job policy. that is one of the reasons why obama takes every opportunity he can to point out this clean energy proposal, because don't wait politically that the white house sees an opportunity to
, suspicions about what the administration wants to do here when it comes to gun violence. president obama has repeatedly tried to say that he respects constitutional rights to bear arms but obviously there's still a lot of suspicions and we saw that in the reaction to what he said to the new republic. >> well, i don't know if this skeet shooting thing will calm things down but we'll see. brianna keilar, reporting live from the white house. >>> also new this morning, a bipartisan push on one of the most divisive issues in washington. it's a nation's immigration system. and this group of eight republican and democratic senators are proposing big, big changes. they will formally unveil details later this afternoon but here's what we know. the plan offers a path to residency, even citizenship for millions of immigrants who are in the united states illegally. it also calls for unemployment verification system that prevents identity theft. and it would end hiring of unauthorized workers in the future. our chief congressional correspondent dana bash is working her sources on capitol hill. so, dana,
put! the president had this to say cut one, about his time working. >> obama: i want the country to appreciate just what an extraordinary role she's played during the course of my administration and a lot of the success we've had internationally have been because of her hard work. >> i'm sorry. i have to disagree with patricia. that sounded like hillary's kickoff for 2016. >> john: i put this out to the brilliant folks in steph land. why do they do this? the president called "60 minutes" and wanted to do this joint interview. something they've never done before. why was it done? was it just a love letter thanking hillary clinton for her service? that's great. we have never seen this done for any cabinet member by a president. any theories? >> hmm. it was a kickoff. >> john: certainly seems that way. >> that's the only thing i can think of. jim? you seem like you're thinking about it. >> i can't see any other reason for it. yeah. >> john: it seems like it was very diplomatic. i have no doubt he's sincere about thanking her for her service to the nation and his administration. but
